Definitely worth stopping in to check this lace out. We had a look in whilst in on our honeymoon and fell in love with a free-form swamp kauri bowl. It was a tad over budget and they offered us a 10% discount and even had it shipped home for us. Very friendly service and we are so pleased to have our beautiful bowl as a reminder of our trip!

This is definitely worth a visit. If you are kiwi or foreign. There are beautiful sculptures and wood that are very hard to source now. Don't miss the Kauri staircase. First place I have ever eaten a meat and kumara pie!

Simple beautiful craftsmanship of the native Kauri wood, plenty examples to suit every pocket, stunning pieces of highly polished kauri that would graze any wall in the home, well worth the visit , just wish we had more luggage space for some of the fine pieces on offer.

The lady who served me was really nice, very friendly and helpful. I bought an ornament and a small purse.

There were many kauri wood items to buy from small ornaments to very large and ornate pieces. There were jewellery and trinkets too and the quality was good.

The colour of the kauri wood I needed had to be quiet light to fit with the rest of the décor in our room. She hunted until she found just what I needed, then she helped me master the credit card reader which was different to UK!!

We stopped as part of a tour to see crafts/foods of the area, this was worth the visit.

It's easy to drive past and not notice, but keep your eyes open and look for the building because it is certainly worth a visit.
An amazing array of unique wood products that are sure to satisfy and delight. Made on the premises ( you can see the workshop through the window in the shop), they offer something for everybody at prices that range from reasonable to very expensive. The shop sort of has two showrooms with a service counter in the middle. I thought the staff seemed a little detached but provided good service when requested. If you can't find something here then your being incredibly fussy. Add this to your to do list at KeriKeri. It's definately worth calling in.
